Brazilian born but now based out of Los Angeles, Gabe Furtado welcomes in the new year with self-love anthem «Flowers», which is out now via all major streaming/download platforms.
«Flowers» is the lead track from his upcoming sophomore album. «Flowers» is a chill synth led track, intertwined with sparkle and 80s edge. Everything, from the song’s lyrics to the melody and production, represents his transformation into positive self-acceptance and love, and he wrote this song as a love letter to himself. It’s the perfect way to kick off the ‘new year, new me’ ethos as it blossoms into life. Gabe recorded «Flowers» at home in his studio and the track is produced by Hi5, Sandra Carletti, and Gabe, himself. The song also sees the popstar’s, signature positive energy, upbeat vibe and strong message sewn throughout.
Telling us about the song, Gabe says «’Flowers’ is a love letter to myself! This song came to me in a moment that I needed it the most, it became my good companion! Through the ups and downs and everything in between, this song makes me feel alive and it makes me feel good! Flowers is my favourite song in the universe! It reminds me that all is well because I love myself!»
